Dr. DeCelles is a number theorist with specific interest in the spectral theory of automorphic forms.  She recently participated in workshops at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) and the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM).   She is involved with Women in Numbers and Project NExT.  Since her week at CIRM in France, she has added new life goal: to make croissants from scratch.
